“Would stay here again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

This is a charming boutique hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. Aside from the elevator breaking down several times...thankfully there are only like 4 floors, we had a comfortable stay. The location is great, within walking distance of most sites. The bathroom was very nice with nice amenities, but as with most European hotels; there is always something a bit off concerning privacy. This one had a frosted door with a clear strip of frame all around, so there was always a view inside the bathroom...one the I don't care to have. The shower was very nice, but the water would always seep beneath the glass door onto the marble floor forcing the bather to spend some time sopping up the floor after every shower.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms overlook rooftops.

This hotel really impressed - good location with links to public transport right outside the hotel, excellent service, spacious modern rooms, good breakfast and friendly atmosphere. The location is excellent with the markets just around the corner, easy walking distance to attractions and to restaurants or if you wish, the tram stop is right outside the hotel. Amsterdam's public transport is excellent. If you arrive by car, there is a drop off point right outside the hotel and the undercover and locked parking is just around the corner (literally). Check in was very pleasant, service overall we found to be very very good - Service and friendliness being the aspect of a hotel that is remembered long after the holiday is finished. The rooms are spacious and modern. The windows are large and give a wonderful feel of openness to the room. Note the windows are unable to be opened. Breakfast was very good - wide selection of food available - buffet with option of requesting eggs etc. to your liking. There is a laundromat (to wash cloths etc.) within 100 meters of the hotel. I would stay here again if returning to Amsterdam and would not hesitate to recommend to all travellers.

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of days. Beautifully appointed and clean and most of the staff friendly and helpful. But be aware breakfast can be a bad or pleasant experience. Our first breakfast great with friendly staff and all food nicely prepared, but if Annamariek are nearby as we experienced the second day, the sausages and scramble eggs will not be edible, croissants will be burned, she will be rude to all customers and avoid any effort to provide a service. No tidy up of tables and more. The cost of breakfast very high and obvious not in line with what they provide in food and service..This attitude was some of the worst I've seen over 20 years of world travel. We did bring the issues with breakfast to the attention of the duty manager but he was reluctant to address the problems on the spot. Room service and cleaning was only done by 16h00 in the afternoon and the previous day even later. This hotel will be wonderful if they can solve the bad apple staff ???

Room Tip: avoid basement rooms

Dear Amacrock,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and give us feedback in order to improve our service. We are pleased that you appreciated the decoration and cleanliness of the hotel and our staff.

I am very sorry for the incident during breakfast. This has been discussed internally with the concerned person in order not to let this happen again.

The dutymanager did take action, but because of the busy breakfast, took this action after all the other guests were served in order to give them the service that can be expected from us.

Due to the check-in time of 15:00 o'clock, we first clean all the check out rooms every day in order to assure that everybody can check in on time. The stay over rooms are done afterwards when it is busy, also because most guests are out of the hotel until nighttime. Would you prefer your room to be cleaned earlier, please just inform us, so that we can arrange this for you.

Thank you again for your feedback, we will take this very seriously and use this for improving our service in the future. We do hope that we may welcome you again when you visit Amsterdam next time. Warm regards, Sven van Maanen (Hotelmanager)

Stayed in Amsterdam at the NottingHill with my best friend for my 40th Birthday
Arrived late and was greeted by a delightful twin room, comfy, spacious and relaxed.
The hotel has been decorated to a very high standard and we were not disappointed.
Unfortunately they werent serving food after 9pm and we were starving, but a short tram ride takes you into the busy resturant areas where we could eat.

The staff were all very friendly and couldnt do enough for us
I would def book again!

We have landed near 09 am (it was US flight). If you are going to arrive earlier than it is noticed on their web-site, you can wait. I know that this was not only my problem: I had seen the group with the same problem as we had. The meal and choice on breakfast is not correspond to the cost , so I think that it will be much more reasonable to have meal in another place. Room was really very clean, small (as usual in Europe), the problem was the closed window: there was really warm weather. I prefer to have more air inside the room

Dear Anna,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this website. We understand that you are tired after a long flight and eager to take a rest. Unfortunately it is very difficult during busy periods to have rooms ready that early, especially because check out time is 12:00 o'clock. If you want to be sure to have a room ready early in the morning, we are more that willing to reserve a room for you with a guaranteed early check in. For additional costs we can already block the room the night before your arrival. Our breakfast price is based on the items we offer. We have chosen to offer the highest quality and fresh products. We hope that you will visit us again next time when you are in Amsterdam. Warm regards, Team Notting Hill.

This hotel was built in 2011, it is spacious and more North American than European in its style. I stayed in room 804 which is in the basement. The room was very large considering European standards, beautifully appointed, cozy and sleek. I loved it. The only con for me was that the lighting in the bathroom was not adequate enough for applying make-up. This hotel is perfect for the single traveller and is definitely for grown-ups. The breakfast was the normal European fare and the coffee was really good. The hotel bar is quiet. I had the Pink Mojito (too sour for my taste) but the classic Cosmopolitan was perfection. The service is personal and professional. There is not much to do in the neighbourhood itself but, it is just far enough to escape the excitement of Amsterdam. It is the perfect hotel if you are spending a weekend in the city or travelling for business and want affordable luxury. The cab fare from Centraal station was around €16 or only 8 stops with tram #4. This is the only hotel I will stay at when in Amsterdam

I really enjoyed the hotel and it was a nice quiet location with the tri-rail stop right at the front which will take you any direction and is very easy and affordable. We enjoyed having drinks at the small hotel bar before heading out for the walk into town. The breakfast wasn't worth the cost of it. The overall hotel was nice, clean, and safe. Most everyone was very nice and helpful. I would stay again but I did scope out a couple other hotels for the future that offer better rates because we rather spend more money on food, drinks, and entertainment. Though not a ton of hotels have parking and this one does but at around $50 a day on top of expensive room that we didn't spend much time in.

Dear TravelingFireman04,

Thank you very much for your positive review. The location of our hotel is indeed perfect for sightseeing and exploring the city. We are pleased to hear that you appreciated our bar and the cleanliness of the hotel. We always try to offer the best rate, but this depends on availability and overall demand. The parking costs are relatively high in Amsterdam and we charge a fair rate for this part of the city. Of course we do hope that we may welcome you again soon. Kind regards, Team Notting Hill
